June 16th meeting

Nishnabotna Valley quilters met on June 16th with 9 members present and one guest, Dixie Armstrong.

There was no secretaries report.. Charmayne... we missed you.  Sharon will take notes for us for this meeting.

Shelly read the treasurers report and it was approved.

Roxie reported that we had a successful sew day with a big enthusiastic group. We got a lot accomplished.  We are still working on walker bags and 40x40 inch lap quilts for our Oakland nursing home project.

Shelly shared the Churn Dash block with instructions for our Sampler quilt.

Show and share had many pretty projects.   Dixie shared  a beautiful quilt that she had made and Fran had quilted for her.  Shelly gets credit for the binding.  It was beautiful. She also shared a small EPP project she is just starting.    Sharon also had a lovely quilt.  Shirley shared 2 quilts for the Elk Horn nursing home that she made.  Betty showed a twisted quilt , Elaine a bed runner made from the CLR men's strips from last month and Dorine showed 3 quilts she had made.  We have been busy girls.

Dorine announced a new addition to her family, great-granddaughter "Millie Marie".  She also reported on her Questors excursion at Jamesport, MO.  Anyone having ALS quilts should give them to Dorine by July 30 and she will mail them.

Old business also included talk of the Shop Hop.  Roxie is looking into several routes and possibilities. We are looking at an August 1st date for the hop.

New business  included program schedule. We decided no program for July and Dorothy will show us her tuck quilt technique for August.

Food bank items for next month will be condiments and spices... and for August mac and cheese if you want to shop early.
